The Elvis & Kresse Small Post Bag

A sustainable handbag with more than one difference. The Small Post Bag, available in our Fire-Hose, Print Room and Fire & Hide collections, is a perfect everyday eco-friendly handbag. With plenty of space, internal pockets, a zip top and an included cross-body shoulder strap - this a stylish and versatile handbag for every day use - or that statement piece to compliment a night out.

Sustainable Handbag Design

The Small Post Bag (and the Large Post Bag) was inspired by a busy lifestyle. A need to have an ethical handbag durable enough to move from your everyday carry needs but also stylish enough to compliment a networking event, after-work drinks or a party.

 Ethical Handbags

Small Post Bag Dimensions

Each Small Post Bag is handmade in a limited batch to ensure quality and each Elvis & Kresse piece is hand finished in rescued materials so variations in hose colour are to be celebrated!

The Small Post Bag measures 20cm in height, 26cm in width and has a depth of 14cm. The genuine fire-hose handles offer a 15cm drop - perfect for handheld use. We also include a shoulder strap that gives you the versatility to use this as an over-the-shoulder or a crossbody bag too!

Features of the Small Post Bag

It may be small, but it is mighty. This gorgeous piece is lined with rescued parachute silk (ripstop nylon) and includes an internal zip pocket to safely store your valuables.

It has plenty of space within for all your everyday essentials and the Fire-Hose & Print Room versions are designed to be water resistant, wipe clean and  are vegan friendly. The Fire & Hide version will need a little more care, and we recommend protecting the leather if you are likely to be caught in the weather.

Kresse regularly carries her phone, purse, book, keys, loose change, business cards, rail card, and small refillable water bottle with a little space for more.

Finishing Touches

Each Elvis & Kresse piece is hand finished with a subtle laser etched logo and each edge is hand-painted. One of our most popular sustainable handbags, the Small Post Bag is available in a range of colour combinations across our core ranges.
